On line Therapy

You may have heard of services like Babylon by TELUS Health, or Maple Online Doctors already. In short: you use your smart phone or computer to get a visit with a doctor, without being in the same room.

We are going to provide a similar service to you. Instead of coming to see us in person and sitting in the same room, we will meet you on-line to provide 1:1 therapy, assessment, or group therapy. This is Telepractice.

Does Telepractice work?

Yes it does. Across Canada, Telepractice is used to provide services to remote and rural areas. These are places where people cannot easily travel to meet with their SLP.

Today we are facing the same challenge. You cannot meet with your SLP in person, but you can meet with them on-line!

Much evidence for the success of Telepractice exists. You are welcome to read the position paper by Speech-Language & Audiology Canada (SAC), the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), as well as journals and further studies hereherehere and here.
